A Simple DIY Sulfur Hair Growth Oil Recipe

DIY Sulfur Hair Growth Oil

Tasha over at HairDiarys Blog posted a really simple mixture that I think is very easy to recreate and your scalp will thank you for it.

What You Need:

Applicator Bottle: This makes applying the mixture to your scalp so much easier

Sublimed Sulfur Powder: Add ONLY 1 teaspoon of the sulfur powder to your bottle. Remember, this stuff is really potent and you do not want to use more than you should. 1 teaspoon is enough.

1 cup of natural oil or oil mixture. Choose your favorite oil or oil blend. Make sure that you have penetrating oils in you mixture like coconut oil or olive oil.


Tea Tree Oil: 5-10 drops of tea tree oil will give your hair growth oil a little extra boost. Tea tree oil is very good at stimulating hair growth and helping to eliminate scalp problems such as dandruff and eczema.

Cover your bottle and SHAKE WELL. It is very important that you shake this up really well to make sure the powder is evenly distributed in the bottle. Every time you are about to use this scalp oil you should shake it properly to distribute the sulfur. We cannot stress this enough.

Lots of girls who have been using DIY Sulfur hair growth oil mixtures have seen favorable results. You will see hair growth if you use it consistently along with your regular regimen.

Below is a YouTube video of Shanitra Nakki showing you how she makes her DIY Sulfur Hair growth oil so that you can make your own.

Other uses of the Sulfur Oil Mix

We have already established that this oil mix is very good for your scalp as it helps to restore your hair follicles to the best of health and promote hair growth. However this is what I would call a miracle mixture because you can use this all over your body and for the whole family.

If you have dry skin, cracked heels or rashes, this sulfur oil mix can help to solve those problems and restore your skin. It is also safe to use on children who suffer from dry skin. For small children, you might want to use less tea tree oil or eliminate it altogether because Tea Tree oil can sometimes be too strong for children’s sensitive skin.

The oil is pretty easy to make. Will you be trying it?

    I’ll definitely try this even though my scalp stop itching since I’m taking #themanechoice hair vitamins!!

    I will definitely try this. Both, my daughter and I, suffer from eczema. So, this may be a God send.

    Unfortunately I have an allergic reaction to Sulphur products. I can do it in minimum amounts but I would look like a lizard otherwise.

  4. Ricca Armand

    This sounds like a great idea and I will definitely try this. But I want to know should i only apply this oil to my scalp or can I apply it throughout my hair?

    1. Alma Ruddock

      With the sulfur smell I would say just apply it on your scalp then use a sweeter or neutral smelling oil for the rest of your hair.

    Question

    I’m currently pregnant i want to try it, can i use castor oil? And if i use henna in my hair can i still use it?

    How do i find the best brand for real henna, castor oil, and the other oils??

    1. Alma Ruddock

      There are no indications of trouble using sulfur or henna when you are pregnant but since the sulfur is easily absorbed I would double check with a doctor first.

      With henna as long as you ensure that it is pure 100% henna like Jamila henna then you should be fine. With oils always check the ingredients to be sure that you are getting a 100% pure product and not one that’s been diluted with mineral oils or other such cheap additive.

    I’m going to try this as my weekly pre-poo under a plastic cap for 25 min. on medium heat. I have never had an allergic reaction to sulfur so far.

    I have numerous bottles of Flowers of Sulfur. My mom purchased them years ago just before the drug stores stopped selling them. I just opened a new bottle yesterday. I mixed it with Vaseline and gave it to someone to use on ringworm. It is a WONDERFUL product.
    I ran out of my oils and this came the day I planned to get more. Thank you and I AM trying this!

  8. Joy

    I’ve heard that sulfur while sulfur can be good for your scalp, it is very drying to hair. Any thought on how to combat that?

    1. Alma Ruddock

      I’ve been using this oil for around a month so far Joy and I haven’t noticed any drying. If you use it as part of LOC method or just on your scalp, don’t imagine that it will be a problem.

    I think there’s an easier and less messy way to go about using sulfur in our hair. I use MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) and you can get it in a liquid form in a spray container. I have low porosity hair, so use the greenhouse method on a daily basis to just get moisture into my hair. I’ve noticed that by adding a few sprays of MSM along with my other spray I use daily my hair has experience a lot of growth.

    1. Rechette

      Do you spray msm directly on hair or do you mix it in a container with another product?

  10. Keisha

    I’m in the transition phase of going natural and love this idea. In going to try this but would like to know approximately how long it would take before I see results and if it’s ok to use on my 7 and 11year old daughters who are natural?

  11. emmjaepenniman

    Thank you for this recipe. I already have the tea tree oil and I’m always looking for ideas to get rid of my itchy, flaky scalp.

  12. Vero

    Can you substitute MSM powder for the sublimed sulfur powder? If so will it work as well? MSM powder is available at a local healthfood store I frequent.
    Thanx

  13. Stephanie Carter

    Yes, I will be adding this to my regimen. It is a lot easier than the treatment I’ve been using that requires cowashing my hair three times a week to remove the growth treatment. Thanks for the great article.

    I have been using Sulfur 8 grease for my scalp because I have Seborrheic Dermatitis and my scalp can become very irritated, red, inflamed and scaly if I do not use my medicated shampoo or the Sulfur 8. I hate using the medicated shampoo to often because it is drying to my hair. The Sulfur 8 I use is the light version with the blue label. I have only seen it at Walmart. It doesn’t have the strong smell like the original with the yellow label. It has been a lifesaver for me and my scalp. I knew it was my go to when my scalp was on fire and very inflamed one day plus itchy. I almost lost it but when I put the Sulfur 8 grease on my scalp, it calmed down in about 15 minutes and my scalp was healing right away because the next day my scalp felt a lot better and looked better too. I was also able to wear my hair styles for over a week if I needed to and my scalp remained balanced. This article is another good option if I ever need it. Thank you so much

    I would love to see how to make this DIY but I can’t see the directions because of the ad in the middle of the page, it’s covering it up. Second I clicked on the youtube screen but it says the video is private. Could you please help?

    If you are suffering from hair loss then read my success story. Ever since I was in my early 20’s my hair seemed to get thinner & thinner and with my Dad also being bald I knew the inevitable was going to happen. While my hair got thin to the point of being almost bald I think I spent the next 15 years trying to prevent my hair loss and so I have tried pretty much every pill/shampoo/supplement there is. I spent a lot of money and absolutely none of them worked.

    Then about 2 years or so ago I came across a video on the internet at the following website:
    healthcurenews*com/hairloss (obviously change the * for a dot as it won’t let me post links here). This website shows a method of regrowing your hair via natural treatment methods. I was skeptical but I went ahead with their guide and within a month my hair was already showing signs of regrowth improvement. 6 months later, my hair was thicker than it was when I was 16 and now with occasional treatment I have a stable head of full hair. Have a watch of the video and then see for yourself. I am just sharing a method that worked incredibly for me so please don’t flame me for posting a link if it is against comment guidelines

    Please be mindful of the sulfur you use- MSM is an edible sulfur- white in appearance, sold as a vitamin. The sulfur you use for your hair is sublimed sulfur, the yellow powder, and is very dangerous to consume in a large amount and you need to do your best to not breath it in. Do yourself a favor and just get a ready made sulfur oil blend- Here is a link to one from amazon- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0711X1MQ4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_3LcuzbHSMPYTG Conscious Essence Long hair & health scalp oil blend.

    I really want to try this but can you tell me what is the difference between the 99.9% yellow sulfur powder. In the sublimed sulfur powder that you recommend we use.
